I think he has the tools, but I question his ability to bring everything consistently and his leadership. I think if we get him re-signed he will eventually be the 1st line center of this team, maybe even sooner than most expect.
I seriously think he could be better than Z when we finally get to see NHL hockey once again. I don't think he has Pavs' level of skill but he could be a solid #1 center. At this point I really like him on the wing but if we can get him two quality wingers (Jurco, Tvrdon maybe) then he could be a very good two-way center and set-up guy who can put up 70 points or thereabouts.
